Is Obama Bad for the Environment?

September 26, 2011

It’s hard to see any environmental group actually campaigning against Obama, even after the ozone and oil-sands disappointments, although the effect could be felt in fundraising and grassroots enthusiasm. And Obama has still done a lot for greens, from ambitious new fuel-economy standards to unprecedented funding for alternative energy — not to mention the fact that the President, unlike most of his GOP opponents, actually accepts the reality of climate change. But the events of the past few weeks drive home an unhappy fact: amid a floundering economy and a scarily tight re-election battle, the environment is going to come second for the White House.
